WEDIM, Day 6
This goes out
To the young
Who are down
Don’t you worry
Because you will grow
Into a super human
With the inevitable mistakes
That make you stronger
As you are learning, everyday
How to be
A super you
But as long as
You are here
As you try
To hold on
To this mighty
Until the pain
And the panic
All fade away
WEDIM, Day 5
Thanks to How to Draw and Paint for teaching my five-year-old-drawing-hand how to draw a tiny super you lol
Love equals smiles
Topped with glee
And an ice cream moustache
Love equals happy eyes
Taking in this mighty world
With courage and wonder
Love equals f
For the unknown
And finding y o u r s e l f
Love equals this poem
Strangely clueless, trying
To describe the indescribable
WEDIM, Day 3
Busy thoughts and tired eyes
“Just get some rest!”, my brain sighs
“Too many things on the To-Do”
“Doubts and fears as deep as the ocean blue”
“Your keeping calm abilities are clearly in jeopardy”
“Things are confusing now, but just let them be!”
“Undress your thoughts”
“Out of the insecurities of all sorts”
“Put on your favourite pyjamas”
“And dream, of the moon and stars”
“Wrap the panic-stricken panic in a warm blanket”
“With an alarm at opportunity o’ clock, all set”
“Tomorrow’s another day”
“And funnily enough, this crazy internal monologue.. shall replay”
WEDIM, Day 2
All of us have something in our minds that we passionately dream of..uu
For the ambitious ones, it’s success.
For the adventurous ones, knowing that they seized every opportunity, is a celebration.
For the realistic optimist, it’s taking every mistake as a learning experience to eventually reach success and exhilarating happiness.
For the anxious ones, making something out of all the wishful thinking becomes something to hysterically happy-cry about because they’re so proud of themselves.
For the romantic, it’s finding someone imperfectly perfect. (hey, I know you’re a romantic. Yes, you! Don’t you super secretly want that someone who loves you, just being you? But other than that you’re super chill and not sappy at all. ).
All of us dream.
We dream big, and that is something astounding..
Yet what we forget in the times of hardships and mistakes and setbacks is that, embracing and taking pride in the little things is what counts you down on your ‘let’s reach happiness’ meter. Am I just inserting a clichéd happy-quote-kind-of sentence and topping this little internet bubble off with an exclamation point? Honestly, yes. But do you know what the crazy part is? I just realised how true this is..
Dreaming about the world that you’d love to live in is great.
But you also need to keep yourselves busy en route.
Do every little thing that you can to get even an inch closer. Make new connections, start the conversation, take up smaller learning projects, celebrate your daily victories, be proud of yourself for being super brave! Get yourself thinking “Why am I on this path, and what can I do to shine the brightest?”. Accept the fact that achieving the end goal is not going to be quick. Be grateful for the time that you get to learn and love things on the way. Start small. Simply starting, and your ability to keep keep on keeping on will get you where you want to be soon. I promise.
I’m attempting WEDIM! That is, Write Everyday in May. More of my crazy thoughts on why and how later. Thanks for reading!
